"As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
When the wind has passed over it, it is no more, and its place acknowledges it no longer.
But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him..."
~Psalm 103:15-17a

The Latest in the Craft Department

I've been keeping busy so far this summer with cooking and cleaning at home and completing various crafts that I had started but hadn't had time to finish.  One thing I recently finished was a sock.  (Yes, just one.)  I started it several months ago, and just finished it this past week.  Why did it take so long?  Here's why:

The next thing I worked on was to finish up some aprons I had started.  My aunt Katie designs patterns (you can see her website here), and for Christmas one year, she gave all of us girls patterns for an apron plus material to make it!  Sally made hers already, but I hadn't done too much to the rest of them - just cut out the material and done a bit of prep work.  But, I have them all finished up, now!  Here are some pictures:

If you like these aprons and just happen to want your own...they're called "Short Stack Aprons" ... and you can buy the pattern here. :)

Day One!

It's Day One of the time of prayer for human trafficking!  Keep up with the suggestions for how to pray on the Hear the Call blog.

"O LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their heart, You will incline Your ear to vindicate the orphan and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth will no longer cause terror."  ~ Psalm 10:17-18
